Cooking with Kids (Thanksgiving): Oreo Turkey Treats

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

After all those fun Halloween treats we made a few weeks ago, my kids were getting the itch to try something fun for Thanksgiving too.  One of the kids' teachers made these last year with their class and I thought they were just adorable, so we decided to try it at home.  My younger kids needed some help with the details, but my older ones (6+) had no problems and totally enjoyed themselves in the process. They're fun, cute, festive, and easy to make. Can't beat that!

The ingredients:
(per turkey)
2 double stuffed Oreo cookies
7 candy corn
1 Whopper candy
1 pkg. squeezable white icing (with a fine tip)
1 pkg. squeezable red icing/gel (with a fine tip)

Directions: 
Place a little stripe of frosting about half way around the Oreo, between the cookies.
Gently wiggle the candy corns down in between the chocolate layers to create the "feathers".
Remove the top chocolate layer off the other Oreo. Put a little stripe of white icing and place the Oreo filled with the candy corn feathers upright into it pushing down slightly.
 Decorate the whopper with eyes and a wattle...


Place a tiny dab of frosting in front to hold the whopper "head".
VOILA!!!!
Total Thanksgiving cuteness!

Enjoy!
